Chiefs Meet With a Pair of Corners And a Receiver

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs talked with a pair of cornerbacks and a big wide receiver after yesterday's practice according to DraftCountdown.com.

One player was headed to play baseball with the Rangers until last week.

Info on the players, after the jump.

CB Perrish Cox (5'11", 189 pounds), Oklahoma State

Chad Reuter of NFLDraftScout.com says Cox is helping himself this week with solid play, especially because other corners haven't looked so sharp.

He's got sub 4.5 speed and a knack for breaking up passes but he also missed curfew twice during bowl week causing him to miss his team's game. Definitely something for scouts to keep an eye on. On the other hand, this could be a positive causing him to slip if the Chiefs were interested and getting good value.

He's expected to go around the second round.

WR Riley Cooper (6'4", 214 pounds), Florida

Another interesting story here. Cooper originally opted for MLB, even receiving a $250,000 bonus from the Texas Rangers before deciding football is the sport he wants to play. He told the Rangers, 'Thanks but no thanks', and is focusing on football.

He caught 51 passes for over 900 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2009. He's listed as running a 4.5 but he says he can get higher than that.

He expects to go anywhere from the 2nd-4th round.

CB Trevard Lindley (5'11", 178 pounds), Kentucky

He had an early season ankle injury that sidelined him for a month and struggled at times because of that.

He runs about a 4.5 and is expected to go in the 4th-5th round.
